Winemaker Ed DeWitt Notes
Harvest Stats: The 2012 Cabernet was picked on October 13, 2012 at the aCURE eSTATE vineyard. It had an average brix of 25.8, pH of 3.71, acid 0.62gm/100ml. The Fiore Estate Cabernet was picked on October 14, 2012. It had an average brix of 26.4, pH of 3.52 and acid 0.65gm/100ml. 50ppm of SO2 was added to prevent fermentation with indigenous yeast. After 4 days of cold soak, Bordeaux yeast VQ 51 from Enartis Vinquiry was prepared and pitched with an addition of Nutriferm Start, a yeast nutrient. No additional additives were used. The wine was fermented for 18 days, in Macro T-Bins, with 4 punch downs a day. It was basket pressed and hand-poured into a combination of old and new EBC American Oak from Barrel Builders of St. Helena, ...more... CA. It was aged for 20 months with racking every 3-4 months. It was filtered then bottled on July 19, 2014. Tasting Notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with a powerhouse of cola and clove. Softened layers of plum and cassis with hints of leather and spice on the finish. The oak and tannins are well integrated making the wine easy going and drinkable, now.
